DAWSON — Whether on the ground or through the air, Dawson-Boyd's offense was hard to stop on Thursday.

Hosting Adrian for the season opener, the Blackjacks cruised to a 57-18 victory at R.B. Clay Field.

Bentley Boike, last year's top rusher in the area, picked up where he left off with 180 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. Colton Husby provided more punch on the ground with 96 yards and two scores on seven attempts.

Taking over the reins at quarterback, Jake Lee completed 5 of 9 passes for 145 yards and four touchdowns, starting with a 32-yard connection with Zach Durfee in the first quarter. Durfee led D-B with 74 receiving yards on two catches, both touchdowns. Romell Horton finished with two grabs, 42 yards and a touchdown, and Josh Anyasike crossed the goal line from 29 yards out on his lone catch of the night.

On defense, Kolten Lindblad was a menace on the defensive line, finishing with eight total tackles (three for loss) and a pair of sacks.

On Sept. 7, the Blackjacks will stay at home to host defending Class A champion Minneota.
